Hi! Did you have a good weekend? Mine just completely flew past me! I had been planning on baking and taking photos, but couldn't squeeze it into the schedule. So... I cheated and took a picture of a pre-made gingerbread man. Isn't he so cute?
I don't quite know where this love of gingerbread came from, as it's not really a traditional part of Christmas in the Philippines. And, even though I've been living in New Zealand for more than a decade, it was never really my thing. Until last month! I've gone gingerbread crazy! Gingerbread cookies, ginger bread latte, gingerbread loaf... even the Ginger Sparkle collection from The Body Shop! Seriously, I smell like a gingerbread cookie factory on most days.
The recipe I was planning on trying out was the one from the Kikki-K blog. I'll most probably try them once I'm on holiday. 13 more days. Can't wait!
So, while I've been cramming myself full of gingerbread cookies, I asked my lovely co-host Susannah and fantastic sponsors Kat and Amanda which Christmas flavours and scents they adore. See what they had to say!
